Description

Compelling, raw, and emotionally charged.

 

These are three ways of describing the verses in "A Symphony of Silence," Teresa Edmond-Sargeant's second collection of poetry.

Within these eclectic pages, in Part One she muses on life as a daughter, mother, writer, and someone who has been in one too many failed relationships. Between all the rainy days, heartless exes, and "brewed wisdom" lies the ultimate poetic experience eagerly waiting to unfold.


In Part Two, Edmond-Sargeant discusses her thoughts on poetry as a genre and gives some advice on how to be fearless as a writer and her purpose for writing.

 

With "A Symphony of Silence," join Teresa Edmond-Sargeant as she keenly reels you into her vibrantly expressive world.

 

BLANK PAGE

The misty chains of language tug

on my tongue.

My muse whispers a void in my head.

The bitter goneness of ideas stare

at me, mock me as I trudge to put

words

on

paper.

My desire to compose

screams a symphony of silence

as I wrangle with how to write

this poem.

Part One

‘Poems ...’

Brewed Wisdom

EVERY DAY, AFTER WORK,

Daddy went

to the liquor store

to buy a one-pack,

two-pack, or a case of beer.

Every night,

he would sit at the corner

of our dining room table

and drink every single can to the drop.

I’ve seen him polish off a whole case

in one night.

Mom said he would finish a six-pack

before dinner.

Talk about happy hour ...

I thought this was normal.

Budweiser was Daddy’s buddy.

He was a wise man

who spouted words of wisdom

from his chair,

About how the real world was.

There were times when

I asked him what

the definition of a word is.

Yes, he’d answer me, and then

elaborate

for

an

hour,

telling me how the real world was.

Though Daddy read all the time,

I didn’t realize until now that

he might be getting some of his

wisdom

from

within his beer cans.

This, I thought was normal.

Daddy was a quiet drunk.

No fights,

no legal troubles,

no abuse.

He never argued with anyone,

He never hit anyone.

Mom said in the 25 years

they were together,

she only saw him drunk once,

but even then,

he was quiet.

He was a sleepy drunk,

who would retire to bed early.

Whenever he went to bed,

I would miss him—

even though he was home every
